    Except for the fact that Donald Sterling is an actual racist, so in this case this is irrelevant.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It is a statement that shows compassion, respect, love and disdain at government for what it has done to people. And he does say something along the lines of not wanting to go back... so have at it buckeroo.
    If you can't figure it out, there is no point in trying to explain it to you.

    So does that mean there would also be an all-white league, an all-Asian league, and so on?

    Yes she is. And he employs dozens and dozens of black people.

    As he has been publicly for most of your life. This private phone call with his black call-girl friend changed nothing.

    Does anyone find issue with a young, pretty black girl dating an 81-year-old known racist for his money?

    If he did this then it is ridiculous. You do not fight discrimination with segregating yourself from your white fellow basketball players, you remove the racist elements from the NBA. The problem is not with the Clippers, the fans, the players or most of the NBA owners it is with this racist moron who owns the Clippers. Creating a separate black league will achieve nothing but a worse product in basketball for black and white players and black/white fans in America.
